‘A person who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new’
What a great quote! Growth mindset means we can build our skills in any area through persistence and hard work.
For example instead of thinking ‘I did a mistake’ try thinking ‘mistakes help me learn better’.
How could you use a growth mindset in your learning? Tell the class in the comment section.
Over the last few weeks we have been looking at 3D shapes. We have designed and built them using nets and looked at their properties including faces, edges and vertices.
Post a comment about what you have learnt about shape. You could write about the shape you did for your learning task, where you can find them in everyday life or something new you have learnt. Post a comment!
Barwon Heads Primary School is focussing on reducing our waste and using less. One of the things we can do is bring along a lunch box every day, rather than wrapping our sandwiches and rolls in plastic wrap or a zip lock bag. You can also use a reusable drink bottle to cut down your plastic use.
Post a comment and share some other tips that will help reduce your waste at school and home.
Last week we focused on visualising during reading sessions. Visualising is when you create a movie in your mind to bring what you are reading to life! You can use the words in the text and your own prior knowledge to help you visualise.
Choose a part from your story that you are reading and describe what you see when you visualise the scene!
Over the last two weeks we have been looking at measurement. This includes length, volume, mass and capacity. We have done lots of great activities over this time.

This Monday the 31st of October the Grade 3’s had a super healthy lunch using produce from the garden. We picked silver beet, kale, spinach, mint and beans to make a salad. Students brought a container, wrap or roll to put their salad in. Many thanks to Liz (Sonny’s mum) for helping out. We have so much produce that we will be having another lunch next week!
On Wednesday Amy from Silly Science came and spoke to the grade 3’s about science and did some really cool experiments! We learnt about chemical reactions, polymers, magnets and much more.

It’s been a while since our last class blog entry I have added some photos from last term to look at below.
Plus it’s been a very busy start to the term! We have had an excursion to Scienceworks, completed experiments for our topic solids, liquids and gases. Watched a performance of the Little Mermaid, learned about road safety and worked on lots of maths, reading and writing!
Tell us about your favourite activity over the last few months and why you liked it in the comment section!

Our schoolyard has too much rubbish in it. It’s not rude to eat nude food. Nude food is very important for our environment. But what is nude food? Nude food mean bringing lunch boxes that you can use over and over again and bringing containers that are washable to avoid using plastic. Here are some examples of good lunch boxes and containers.
So when you are packing your lunch next time try to use Nude food! Let’s help reduce our impact on the environment and the rubbish in the school ground.
